Excellence Through Endeavour


At Woodrush high school we expect the following from all students:

  • Strive for success and excellence - believe in yourself and celebrate your achievements
  • Be resilient and never give up - try hard, take risks &  learn from  mistakes
  • Be punctual and prepared to learn – arrive to every lesson, form time and assemblies on time, remember all equipment.
  • Wear your uniform correctly and with pride – blazers on, shirts tucked in, ties smart – zero tolerance for incorrect uniform. 
  • Show respect to staff and students at all times - swearing, talking back, bullying will not be tolerated.
  • Follow instructions first time and every time – listen politely, respond positively  
  • Use learning time effectively - Use the toilet and fill water bottles at break and lunchtimes only

Behaviour and consequences

We encourage all students to manage their own behaviour. If students are not meeting expectations, we have a very clear and straightforward consequence system in place We keep a log of any behaviour concerns and we will call parents in for a meeting if we do have any concerns. We do have a very strong pastoral team to ensure students are fully supported with any behaviour issues. If you do have any concerns regarding your child’s behaviour, please contact their Head of Year or progress leader (-see pastoral care link)
